WWDFAS - The Guggenheims: A Dynasty of Art Collectors

Tuesday, 19 March 2019 - Presented by: West Wales Decorative and Fine Arts Society

What other family in the twentieth century managed to amass such extraordinary art collections, and design or purchase such astounding buildings to display their collections? This lecture looks at the beginning of both Solomon’s and Peggy’s collections in New York City, with artists they acquired such as Kandinsky and Pollock, and traces the development and expansion of their collections over more than half a century, by which time the Guggenheim name had become synonymous with some of the most inspiring art and museums in the world.

Presented by Andrew Hopkins
